Small Business Resources that Matter
The one thing that anyone can find a great deal of on the Internet is information. Whatever you are looking for one quick Google search later and you will almost certainly have found it. Or will you?
What is a Small Business White Paper Really?

Small Business Resources
By dictionary definition a white paper a white paper is ‘an authoritative report or guide helping readers to understand an issue, solve a problem, or make a decision’. They originated in government in the 1920s but over the years were also adopted by individuals and businesses as a way to disseminate a larger amount of information to a wide audience. They are also a marketing tool for the authors but that does not mean that the information they impart is not hugely valuable which is why I, and many others, find them to be such a great resource.
Although there are a great many white papers published all of the time finding them is not always easy. The nature of the search engine is to push certain results, the ones with the right keywords, but not necessarily the best information, to the top of a search, making it harder to find these long form pieces that do offer the in depth information you were searching for.

A Wealth of Resources in One Place
Imagine a place where you can find a huge number of white papers and similar long form informational pieces all in one place, covering a vast array of industries. Resources that have been pre-vetted to weed out the spam and the poorly written, inaccurate information that the search engines do not. That is exactly what I did happen upon and it is fair to say the site has become one of my go to resources for information and education in my own field as well as a place to learn something new. It is also an excellent resource for those seeking new career challenges and those who are looking for people who are. The fact that the white papers are free to download is an extra bonus.
I am not claiming that white papers can solve all your problems or give you all of the information you need but as a way to as their definition suggests solve problems, make decisions or simply become better informed about your industry, your career or your future career they can prove invaluable. And addictive, so don’t say you haven’t been warned. Although when can there ever be such a thing as too much learning on the way to reaching your goals?

Pros and Cons of Starting a Home Business

Beginning a business out of a private home has gone mainstream. Entrepreneurs in a variety of industries have started up successful business from their home office, bedroom, or kitchen table. You can find financial professionals, lawyers, landscapers, dog walkers, and architects who have decided to ditch the long commute and high rental fees that working in an office building might require. They have also decided to become self-employed to enjoy more control over their lives.

In fact, you do not have to have a lot of formal education or special high-tech skills to run your own business out of a home office. If you are not sure what kind of business that you could begin to earn a full-time or part-time income, you might refer to this article: Five Real Ways to Earn Extra Money. It concentrates on businesses that could be started in your spare time, but some of these businesses can turn into generous incomes.

Pros of Running a Business from Home

There is no doubt that working from home has a lot of advantages. The most obvious one is that 30 second commute from your bedroom to your personal computer. You do not have to get dressed up, fix your hair, or even wear shoes. Most people can conduct a lot of their daily tasks with an Internet connection, PC, and phone.

You may need to dress up to meet clients or attend to some tasks outside of your home, but you can always return to eat lunch out of your fridge. You can also save money on office rent. You might even be able to take advantage of a home office deduction on your income taxes.

Cons of Working out of Your House

Running a business from your house has some disadvantages. Some people crave the social life that a busy office provides, but working from home also provides a way to avoid office politics if you do not care for them. The other advantage and disadvantage is that your work will probably be accessible twenty-four hours a day. This means that you can maintain a flexible schedule, but you might find yourself devoting time to work that you would have spent on relaxing or tending your family otherwise.

Distractions might become a problem when you work from home. Friends and family might think that you have plenty of free time now that you do not have to commute to an office, but most self-employed people succeed because they invest a lot of time and energy in your business. If you still have kids running around or elderly folks who need attention, it might be tough to focus on your home business enough to really succeed.
